If the official stopped play after catching the ball while inbounds, the game would be resumed at the point of interruption. Since Team A still had team control, that means a throw-in for Team A at the nearest out of bounds spot.
While the ball is dead, the officials might as well ask Team B if they still want the time-out, which could now be granted before resuming play.
